Morningville Eatery at Wijaya 1 Petogogan Jakarta

September 11th, 2017. I saw Morningville Eatery on my way to some place *I cannot remember which place* LOL. Then, I searched on their Instagram account. They opened end of July. So, it’s quite new, right? It’s time for me to spent one morning there!

I think they were in the same building with Conclave coworking space. It’s too early, I didn’t look around hahaha.. Morningville occupied one spacious area with lovely atmosphere and greenish ambiance. Well, just look at my photos below, guys.

Cafe Latte 33k

My morning latte was perfect! The glass wasn’t too big. The latte wasn’t too creamy. And the coffee was just at the right portion. The latte art was also lovely. I could smell delicious aroma from the cafe latte.

Sofia Restaurant at The Gunawarman Senopati Jakarta

October 12th, 2017. I was very happy when I received invitation from Sofia at The Gunawarman. I wanted to visit the place, but a little bit afraid with the place. Well, it looked very intimidating. Don’t blame me. Look for yourself. Hahaha. But, finally, after visited the place, it’s not that scary. 🙂

IMG_6495

A radiant naturally lit gourmet restaurant decorated gracefully with a row of striking floor-to-ceiling arc windows that serves exceptional Italian, French and Asian cuisines with a comfort of everyday dining approach.

Located at Hotel The Gunawarman, Sofia stood beautifully with the elegant and luxury ambiance. But, I felt the friendly gesture from the place. Well, I came to an IGers gathering, so it’s very fun to meet different kind of people.

Acai BAR at Senopati Jakarta

August 23rd, 2017. I have already seen Acai BAR before. Long before everybody else came to the place. But. Since I didn’t really like smoothies bowl, it was not on my list. That morning, I went there, just because I had another event near Acai Bar, so I visited the place first before going to my main event.

IMG_3607

When I saw their facade, I had already guess that it will be super cute. And it is really a petite one. Around 4-5 tables, then the acai bar. Just a long table bar. But the atmosphere was pretty nice with colourful murals on the wall.

IMG_3608 IMG_2403 IMG_2402 IMG_3609 IMG_3615 IMG_3616 IMG_3612 IMG_3614 IMG_3613 IMG_3610 IMG_3611

Malibu Surfer 75k

Acai, Guava Juice, Banana (Honey Nut Granola, Sliced Banana, Strawberry, Mango, Coco Flakes, Honey Drizzle.)

When I read in the menu that they used mango, I ordered this right away. Served in a plastic glass, I thought it will be one small portion. But when I scooped one by one, my tummy was getting full.

[NEW LOCATION] Sugabites Patisserie at Senopati Jakarta

August 13th, 2017. I once went to Sugabites Patisserie on November 2015. Whoaaaa.. time flies, right? And then it was shut down. Suddenly, on August 9th, 2017, it opened again at a new location. It’s bigger and prettier.

IMG_3112

I learned that Sugabites belongs to sisters, Fanda Soesilo and May Soesilo. Whoaaaa.. I wish I could have such talents like them. Well, you can look at their website about the story of Sugabites. It’s really a nice one. Located in Senopati area, Sugabites wasn’t very spacious but quite big for a patisserie. Dominated with warm ambiance, Sugabites caught my heart all at once. It’s really different from the previous one. They used to be a small shop with a petite area to eat. Now they re-opened with a better version.

IMG_3113 IMG_3121 IMG_3122 IMG_3123 IMG_3124 IMG_3126 IMG_3125 IMG_3127 IMG_3115 IMG_3116 IMG_3119 IMG_3120

Java Jasmine 15k

Love the big glass! OMG. I was very happy hahaha..

IMG_3214

Latte 33k

They used TGC for the coffee. I think I never tried it before. I loved it. Bold with not-too-creamy texture and beautiful after taste flavour, it’s no wonder I could finish it in a flash. They have es kopi susu too, but maybe next time. Funny thing, when I asked the barista how they serve the es kopi susu, she answered with a little bit too cheerful. “Well, it’s coffee and milk!” Well, actually I asked about the glass. Will it be in a glass or plastic cup. LOL. I know it’s coffee and milk, for sure. Hahahaha.. Yeah, it’s quite funny.

IMG_3128

Cappuccino 33k

Cindy’s order, from my second visit. A little bit bitter for me.

IMG_3212

Darren’s Greenies 18k

Matcha, Vanilla

Love the combination of matcha and vanilla in this cake. Not too sweet with a hint of bitter from the matcha. The texture was also very good. Sometimes other cake was too creamy. But this one was just a perfect cake with perfect texture and perfect flavour. No wonder only 1 cake left in the cake display.

IMG_3130

Lemon Meringue Tart 18k

Lemon Curd, Sweet Dough, Meringue

Super love with thies lemon meringue tart. The texture of the tart was totally perfecto. It’s not hard to chew and not too tender to bite. Sometimes it’s too crumbly. But not with this one. The flavour was also fantastic. I could eat this one 2 portions, alone. The combination of lemon curd and meringue: overwhelming. Super recommended. Addicting!

IMG_3129

Najela’s Favourite 18k

Rose, Vanilla, Pistachio, Almond

Too creamy for me but the rose flavour was just perfect. Not overpowering the other flavours. But like I said before, it’s too creamy. The texture was too moist, for me. But it was one pretty cake to eat. 🙂

IMG_3210

Rock and Roll 18k

Peanut, Strawberry, Chocolate

I think they need to put more strawberry to this cake. It’s hard for me to find the flavour of strawberry in the cake. The peanut and  chocolate flavour combined perfectly. The texture of the cake was impeccable. One recommended cake.

IMG_3209

The Red Dragon (Dragon Fruit) and Yellow Sunset (Pineapple, Orange) @ 27k

The Gelato was from Fiore di Gelato. Like they said: Feel the Happiness from every flavour of Gelato in our first outlet! I love the flavours. The red dragon was refreshing, same with the yellow sunset. Next time we should try their gelato and choco.

Congratulations Sugabites Patisserie for the re-opening at the new location. Definitely will be back again and again.

Baxter Smith – Dining, Lounge & Roofbar at Suryo Senopati Jakarta

August 1st, 2017. I knew when Baxter Smith opened its door for public. But I didn’t know whether it’s a casual place or fine dining or else. According to the name, it felt like an intimidating place. *so sorry* So when a media coordinator contacted me to come to the place, I cleared my schedule. LOL.

IMG_2391

Baxtersmith comes to present modern steampunk atmosphere suitable as a dining area and bar, with emphasis on the service warm and welcoming to all visitors. Baxtersmith has the Dining Room with a capacity of 150 people and the Lounge & Rooftop with a capacity of 300 people. Backed with banquet facilities for the purposes of private function, gathering, birthday, product launchings and other events. We have a unique menu prepared by reliable chef, using the best selection of ingredients guaranteed to pamper visitors. Feel the real steampunk nuances only in Baxtersmith – Dining, Lounge, & Roofbar, Senopati.

Baxter Smith divided into 3 levels. The 1st level: dining. The 2nd level: lounge. The 3rd level: roofbar. And it’s not as intimadating as I thought. Well, maybe it felt like that because of the dim lightings. The only bright area was the roofbar. And it’s the most gorgeous area at Baxter Smith. Located at Suryo street Senopati district, it was named after a famous blacksmith from London, Baxter Smith. I love their logo, an English bulldog wearing a tall hat and a monocle on its right eye. Well, let me show you around through my photos.

It was tender and delicious. The duck jus enhanced the flavour of the meat.
Love the Pan Seared Salmon too. Well-seasoned with delicate salmon.
The Tuna Tataki was also a favourite. The texture was overwhelming.
If you're burger lovers, you should try their Baxter Beef Burger.
The beef patty looked dry, but when you bite it, it's so tender. Recommended.

creamy mango pannacota, berries, crumble and mango sauce

Super recommended. The texture of the pannacota was stunning. The mango was sweet and tasted so adorable. Uhlala.. I want order it again and again and again.

Doppio Coffee at Wolter Monginsidi Jakarta

June 14th, 2017. This was the second time I went to Doppio Coffee. The first time, I went there on a foodies invitation but I only took photo for Instagram. So that’s why this time I made a blog about it. Hihihi..

IMG_9939

When I stepped inside Doppio the first time, I felt a very homey atmosphere. The second time, still felt the homey atmosphere. 🙂 They also have smoking area. The coffee shop is side by side with craft center shop. But since I didn’t really like to see things in craft center, I never visited the place. I just sat in the coffee shop to enjoy the coffee and doing my blogging things. By the way, doppio means double, in coffee language double is for double shot. CMIIW.

IMG_9936 IMG_9937 IMG_9942 IMG_9953 IMG_9943 IMG_9938 IMG_9941 IMG_9940

Doppio Cube 45k

It’s really delicious. The coffee was in cubes form. Pour the milk and they mixed together inevitably. I took quite long time to take photos, the milk wasn’t hot anymore so it also took time to melt the cubes. But, I loved the doppio cube. I poured all the milk, it’s definitely milky.

IMG_9944 IMG_9945 IMG_9948 IMG_9949

Crunchy Banana 33k

with cheese and our homemade srikaya

The banana was absolutely crunchy, but inside it was moist and tender. And sweet!! Loved it. I wish I could change the cheese into chocolate. Hmmm.. and the srikaya was good. Sweet taste with great texture.

IMG_9950 IMG_9951

It’s definitely a nice place to hang out or just me-time. I will be back soon.
